Beida and Tunis, March 28 2015:
Tomorrow’s mass March Against Terrorism in Tunis could see representatives of the Libya . . .[restrict]Dawn antigovernment of Omer Al-Hassi seeking to join the demonstration alongside Libyan premier Abdullah Al-Thinni, who flew into Tunisia this evening.
The march, prompted by last week’s terror attack on the Bardo museum in the Tunisian capital in which 22 people died, is expected to attract politicians and leading figures from across North Africa. There may also representatives from diplomatic missions and even some European politicians. However, a markedly high level of security has meant that few details of the event are being revealed.
The Libyan government’s media office told the Libya Herald that Thinni had gone to Tunis at the head of a delegation. He had been welcomed at Carthage airport by the Tunisian interior minister Najem Gharsalli.
Though it was reported on social media that the Hassi antigovernment was also sending a delegation, it is not clear who was going.
Since the Tunisians government recognises the House of Representatives as the legitimate parliament and the Thinni cabinet that it appointed as the legitimate government, it is highly unlikely the Tripoli arrivals received any sort of official welcome. It remains to be seen how Tunisian government protocol officials will handle the Hassi team’s wish to join in the anti-terror protest. [/restrict]
